17 days!

17 days to go until the due date, but I'm still hoping to meet Baby Z before then!

We went to the doctor today...I am still 2-3 cm dilated, but now 80% effaced and Baby Z is at zero station.  (See earlier post for an explanation of dilation, effacement, and station.)

Also at today's appointment, I told the doctor that the baby was not moving as much.  He told me to go get lunch and come back to get hooked up to monitors for a non-stress test.  We did that and everything looked great.  Of course the baby started moving more after I said something.  :)  It was great though, Cory and I got to sit for about 30-40 minutes listening to Baby Z's heartbeat.  I could have done that all day! 

So that's about it.  Doctor said we may have a Christmas or New Years Baby...cross your fingers, I can't wait to meet the little one!

I'm just so sure the baby is coming early and it will be a boy. Don't care, though. Either way, we're happy for you!
